Independent Reviews

Review from New Zealand Classic Car, October 2007

Most of us suffer from the Penn McKay syndrome – when it comes to the electrical components of our classic cars, we simply wait for them to break down then trace the smoke back to the fault. This book may well supply the answer – providing clear steps towards ongoing maintenance and fault finding. Thaddeus doesn't assume all his readers possess sound auto-electrical knowledge, so starts with the basics and works up from there. In 16 well-packed chapters, the author looks at all the main electrical systems of a car – charging, ignition, starting, lighting and accessories. Well written and illustrated, this is the perfect book for the home handyman and a sure-fire cure for McKayitis. Recommended.
